Google update got you in a panic?

Tuesday, 21 April 2015

If you have been watching the news then you will have no doubt seen that Google are launching a big update today that can have a huge impact on your website's search engine ranking.

Google will be demoting websites that they class as not mobile ready in an update that experts are calling Mobilegeddon.

If you have a responsive website where your website stacks and changes based on if you are viewing from desktop or mobile device then Google will show you some love.

But if you view your website on your mobile device and it just shows the desktop version where you have to pinch and zoom to view anything, then you could be in trouble. When we say trouble, it means that Google will lower your site in the search rankings in favour of those that have a mobile friendly website.

You can check if your website is mobile ready by using Google's Mobile Friendly Tester and if you need some help, give the team at Way Fresh a call on 0191 244 9976.
